The DMS provides deep muscle tissue with kinetic forms of percussion and concussion vibration, which in turn facilitates the patient or athlete with the benefits of:

  • Increased circulation
  • Reduced pain
  • Faster rehabilitation from injury
  • Increased lymphatic flow
  • Break up of muscular scar tissue
  • Reduced lactic acid build up
  • Tissue Regeneration
  • Soft & Active tissue release

Price: $25 per area

Therapeutic Laser

The laser device is held against the skin over the area being treated. Low-level lasers emit wavelengths of light in the visible red to near-infrared red range, which penetrate deeply into the tissues. The light energy is absorbed and converted to biochemical energy, which stimulates the cells. Low-level laser therapy is believed to speed healing and reduce pain and inflammation. There are no known side effects to low-level laser therapy. Low-level laser therapy is effectively used to treat both acute and chronic pain.

Game Ready Cold Therapy and Compression

Game Ready® wraps feature a patented, dual-action ATX™ (Active Temperature Exchange) design that enables the simultaneous circulation of ice water and air, integrating proven compression and cold therapies like never before.

Active pneumatic (air) compression helps the body pump away swelling and stimulate the flow of oxygen-rich blood. Efficient and even cooling further reduces swelling, muscle spasms, and pain.

(ART) Active Release Techniques and Joint Mobilization

ART® is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.

Spinal Manipulation (Adjustment) or Mobilization

Spinal manipulation is a technique that treats back pain, neck pain and other musculoskeletal conditions via the application of force to the spinal joints, with the idea being that such treatment of dysfunctional areas in the spine can restore the spine’s structural integrity, reduce pain and initiate the body’s natural healing processes.

Spinal manipulation has been practiced since ancient times, although it is commonly associated nowadays with the different types of spinal adjustments that are used by chiropractors.

Cervical Traction

The Saunders Cervical Traction Device is designed to provide safe and effective traction (stretching) to the cervical region (neck). This device effectively decompresses intervertebral discs, reduces pressure on nerve roots, and helps alleviate neck pain.

Lymphatic Compression Therapy

Pneumatic compression helps actively move metabolic waste from your muscles, but without the demand for additional fuel and exercise. It promotes blood and lymphatic circulation while increasing cellular metabolism. This allows for quicker muscular recovery between sporting events.

Electric Muscle Stimulation – EMS

Simply put, electric muscle stimulation trains your muscles in a way that traditional workouts alone can’t. A “best kept secret” that many elite athletes and fitness enthusiasts use to enhance their workouts and reduce pain. Electric muscle stimulation (EMS), also known as neuromuscular electric stimulation, muscle stim or e-stim, is delivered through a small device that sends electronic pulses to your nerve fibers in order to create involuntary muscle contractions.

Benefits include:

  • Efficiently warm up your muscles with pre-designed programs so you can make your time in the gym more efficient.
  • Your muscles don’t know if you’re using EMS or lifting weights. When you do both, Compex recruits your muscle fibers to help take your workouts to the next level.
  • Compex helps to bring fresh oxygen and nutrients to the muscles to facilitate the flushing of toxins, helping you to recover faster.
